Storyline

Archie shocks Nero by informing him of his forthcoming engagement to beautiful Margot Dickey. The announcement will be made officially at a Christmas party hosted by avant-garde designer Kurt Bottweil. To Archie's surprise at the party, Margot now intends to marry Bottweil, not him, but before the evening is over, the designer lies dead, poisoned after drinking his favorite liquor. Although everyone at the party is a potential suspect, immediate suspicion falls on the unknown actor in the Santa Claus suit who mysteriously disappeared during the excitement. After Archie returns to the brownstone, Wolfe reveals to him that he was the enigmatic figure in the Santa outfit. Written by Gabe Taverney (duke1029@aol.com)
